Hello everyone!

25st September, was a first Moya?s live performance in Russia (St. Petersburg)!
I think it was great! I & my friends didn?t believe that Moya would ever visit us. But it happened!

Before the concert we went to meet with Moya and gifted to her a little present. Moya was so friendly!
Then we went to wait till the concert in the Irish pub called ?Gold pint?.
By the way, before Moya's performance Russian folk rock band called ?Melnitsa? (The Mill) performed several of their songs. Check out their best song on YouTube (The Master of mountain roads, Travushka, Silkworm) and their performance on september?s concert.

First Moya?s song was a ?Caisle?n ?ir?? I can?t believe it, because it?s one of my favorite Clannad?s song! Here is track list:

Caisle?n ?ir
Down by the Sally Gardens
Mhorag?s Na Horo Gheallaidh
Alasdair MacColla
Tunes Medley (Eleanor Plunkett, Hobknobs)
In A Lifetime
Mh?ire Bruineall
Caid? Sin Do'n T? Sin
Tunes Medley (Mrs. McDermott + Teampall an Ghleannt?in)
Theme from Harry's Game
I Will Find You
Against The Wind
A Mhuirn?n ? (with Hellawes)

Also was a many funny moments, e.g. ?funny love song about seaweed? (Moya introduced Dulaman)
After the stunning performance of ?Against The Wind?, Moya and Hellawes (Melnitsa? soloist) performed ?A Mhuirn?n ??. Everybody danced in a concert hall! You can see it on this video.
(and also this video)

After the concert Moya signed our CDs. To everyone's surprise she gifted us ?Heart Strings?!!
Here is photo with Moya and CDs.

We all enjoyed the concert! Thank you, Moya! Thank you so much!
P.S. Here is photos by Ruslan Shamukov.

You got to do something with this film. I mean Moya Brennan knew about it right ? You wouldnt dare to film her like this if she was not aware of it.

So i presume you had the permission to film...then i also presume you have the permission to do something with it.
:?: :D

Right ?
